[applause] maybe if i have the chair he will magically appear just like harry reid's imaginary friends appear from time to time. we didn't miss losing that first night of the convention which was cancelled because of the possibility of bad weather. it was a tough but appropriate call given the weather forecast. by the way, the three networks were covering only one hour anyway. if there was a session viewers on cable would have been stuck watching hawaii 50 reruns. going forward. the parties ought to have a two night convention and tw
convention. we begin with 2 authors written extensively about president obama and first lady jody cantor of the new york times and david march inis of the washington post. >> when barack obama became president, we 'might see that mellow michigan rhode island hawaiian quality. we've seen some of that for sheumplet he turned out to be the super competitive perfectist. the story wrote came out of years of hearing the stories the president grading everything, grading people. always wanting to be the best, even at small pursuits like bowling. there's a lot of advantage to this, the fact he worked so hard at everything that he wants to be the best is an admirable quality. that's part of what gave him the confidence to run for the president sivment yet there can also be a down side. >> he spent 10 years of his early life trying to figure himself out. all of the contradictions the world through at him. from the time he left hawaii at the age of 18 until the time he went to harvard law school at 28. very introspective. that period he did figure himself gave him the satisfied to get to the white h

[ applause ] now is the moment when we can stand up and say i'm an american, i make my destiny, we deserve better. my children deserve better, my family deserves better, my country deserves better. >>> question, did the republican convention improve mitt romney's presidential prospects? mortmort zuckerman? >> i think he had to have a platform on which he could appeal to the american public and i think by and large that worked. i think he was often trying to appeal to women and there were a number of things said and done that would i think haven deared him to the voters who are women. and finally, he did a very good job, it seems to me, without being nasty about it, about saying look, the obama administration has been a failure and failure is not an orphan. there is a father for
. this afternoon president obama arrived in charlotte right in time for a star studded night. the marquee speaker tonight, former president bill clinton. the crowd will also hear from elizabeth warren running for the senate in massachusetts. the speakers have been passionate at this convention. throwing punch after punch at republicans and aggressively affirming the strength of the president's record. and it's been great to see. they talked about the auto bailout. >> the american auto industry is not just surviving. it's thriving. where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said i've got your back. >> the president's record on women's issues. >> being a mother is no longer a liability. and being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition. now, that's what change looks like. >> and we've heard the most sustained defense of the obama health care law and what it means to this country. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. >
picture. when it came last night in mitt romney's speech talking about the promise of president obama back in 2009, as if he and the rest of the republicans tried their best to work with the president after the election. let's watch this one. >> four years ago, i know that many americans felt a fresh excitement about the possibilities of a new president. that choice was not the choice of our party, but americans always come together after elections. we're a good and generous people. and we're united by so much more than what divides us. i wish president obama had succeeded because i want america to succeed. but his promises gave way to disappointments and division. >> well, today in its lead editorial "the new york times" called the notion that republicans rallied behind president obama, quote, an extraordinary reinvention of history. quote, the truth, rarely heard this week in tampa, is that the republicans charted a course of denial and obstruction from the day mr. obama was inaugurated. determined to deny him a second term by denying him any achievement, no matter what the cost to the e
numbers showing president obama ahead by eight points in iowa and four points in florida. while the swing state map is what everybody is watching the swing states are the most important to keep an eye on because that's where you wrap up the votes that allow you to win the election, there's new national polling now for what it's worth. there's new polling every day. the republican leaning poll is out with their new national numbers today. their national tracking poll putting president obama up by one point nationally. the gallup tracking poll putting president obama up by three points today nationally. that's in big picture perspective of what's going on in the presidential race. for an even bigger picture perspective on those national numbers, i should point out to you that of the last 20 national presidential polls, of the 20 national polls taken in the month of september, every single one of those it 20 polls shows president obama winning nationally. the range varies from one point up to eight points in some other polls. but 20 straight national polls showing president obama ahead. that
class to hispanics and to women. the night's headliner michelle obama, she blew the roof off the place. >> at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. >> keynote speaker julian castro touched the crowd with his story of humble beginnings the first hispanic to deliver a keynote speech at the dnc. he talked up the president but delivered a punch to mitt romney. >> i don't think governor romney nent meant any marm. he has no idea how good he's had it. mitt romney quite simply doesn't get it. >> it was a democratic party so speakers served up a lot of red meat. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves. >> women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. maybe 23 cents doesn't sound like a lot to someone with a swiss bank account, a cayman island investment. >> put simply, women in america cannot trust mitt romney. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist for "washington post" and political reporter nick con sore ri. let's talk about michelle obama. it was called a resounding trium triumph. what do you think she ac
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
country forward, my husband, our president, barack obama. ( cheers and applause ) thank you. god bless you. god bless america. >> first lady of the united states, the most popular women in the country. more popular than her husband. certainly more popular than anybody else in this room right now, judy. >> woodruff: i think by far, gwen, the woman who knows the president of the united states better than anyone in 22-23-minute speech, it was a blend of the personal, the biographical, the political, the inspirational, and a call to arms. making almost a plea at the end there to people to recognize that they need to go out and work to get her husband elected for this country to move ahead and do what it can do and be what it can be. >> she is more in love with her house now than four years ago and probably hoping everybody in this room and outside this room was more in love as well. >> you're right. i think it was a genius speech, true genius. it was sophisticate sophisticate without ever once mentioning mitt romney's name, she drew a stark, graphic, dramatic contrast between the two lives. sh
-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th

to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they've offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back to the same old policies that got us in trouble in the first place. they want to cut taxes for higher income americans even more than president bush did, get rid of the pesky financial regulations designed to preven another crash and prohibit future bailouts. they want to increase defense spending over a decade, $2 trillion more, than the pentagon has requested, without saying what they'll spend it on. and they want to make enormous cuts in the rest of the budget, especially programs that help the middle class and poor children. as another president once said, there they go again. >> a lot of references in his speech, both subtle and direct, former republicanpresident, ronald reagan. president obama came out on stage. the two men shared a hug, a show of appreciation for a speech that may have gone a long way in helping obama's campaign. a lot to talk about. quick reactions from our panelists, in terms of the top takeaway for tonight? john?
in charlotte, north carolina. democrats have renominated president barack obama after a long and electrifying nomination speech by the former president, bill clinton. >> he answered the attacks last week made in tampa, and plenty of attacks of his own. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this, we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. now, but they did it well, they looked good, they sounded good. they convinced me that they all love their families and their children, and were grateful they had been born in america. really, i'm not -- they did. and this is important. they convinced me they were honorable people who believed what they said. we just have to make sure the american people know what those commitments are. because in order to look like an acceptable reasonable moderate alternative to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back t
it is not something i studied in school, but something i did for 25 years. >> barack obama pushes through florida. >> this is a choice between two fundamentally different paths for america and two fundamentally different visions for the future. >> the could be sequences of tough choices with california governor jerry brown. and also we will speak to newt gingrich, and also revving up the economy, we have carlos gutierrez and carmax founder austin ligon. homestretch politics with peter baker of the "new york times" and a.b.stoddard of the "the hill." i'm candy crowley and this is "state of the union". >> democratic governor jerry brown sad out this year's convention was back home grappling with his massive state budget. a $16 billion deficit, he cutback what he didn't want. this fall the governor wants voters to approve a tax hike for the wealthy and increase in the sales tax. the outcome could have implications for spending mettles in washington and state capitals across the country. joining me is governor of california jerry brown. thank you, governor, for joining us. let's talk a little bit abo
. to reelect the president. >> in charlotte tonight, bill clinton nominates barack obama to serve a second term, appealing to voters who still think it's all about the economy. >> i hope i bring some credibility on what the most effective way to create jobs and bring america back is. >> these two democrats have been at odds in the past. but they're united in the battle to hold on to the white house. >> you're in good hands. >> look for clinton to fire up supporters tonight as he has before. but is there a risk he'll upstage the president? >> sit down! >> now, cnn turns the spotlight on one of the biggest platforms in american politics. this is the democratic national convention. this is the night delegates have their say. >> join with me, we will elect barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own t
of an encore. so team obama, take heed. unleash the crackin'. let bill chill in the swing states and soon we'll be paraphrasing another literary master. the bell tolls for thee, mitt. [ bells tolling ] >> jennifer: the obama team has finally released today stumping for the president after he proved how indispensable he is by bringing down the house at last week's convention. >> since 1961, for 52 years now the republicans have held the white house 28 years. the democrats 24. in those 52 years our private economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs. so what's the job score? republicans, 24 million. democrats, 42 million. [ applause ] >> jennifer: he's right! the democrats created those 42 million jobs. in four fewer years than the republicans had when they held the presidency. clinton himself was a big pirate of that lopsided scoreboard. take a look at this. so since 1962, president george w. bush was the only president who oversaw a decline in jobs. clinton saw the biggest increase. on top of that, for
